THE WOODLANDS, Texas A group called Helping A Hero gave a wounded veteran a new home Monday in The Woodlands.
Specialist Hunter Levine was rolling in his Humvee on the roads of Baghdad, when a roadside bomb tore through the truck and his face, taking his eyes.
It is one of those things that is just staring you right in the face and you still can t believe it, Levine said.
Helping a Hero gave Levine a brand new furnished home.
We are so excited because this is the opportunity for him to start his future and start his new life, said Merideth Iler, the chair of HelpingaHero.org.
Levine is the 31st soldier to receive a home from Helping A Hero. The furniture was provided by Gallery Furniture and some high profile movers helped deliver everything.
He is home with us. He does have some battle wounds but he is here with us and that is the biggest plus, said former major league pitcher Roger Clemens.
It is pretty much just unbelievable. I just can t believe it, Levine said.
Hunter will not be learning his home alone he has also received a seeing-eye dog.
It puts my faith back in humanity. You know with all these people that I have never met, he said.
I m trying to think of something to say to all of you to show my appreciation for all this but I am drawing a blank, Levine told Iler.
She told him simply: You know what. Having you home is all I need.
